Poached Pears Stuffed with Cranberries and Almonds

~ from The Candle Cafe Cookbook

Verdict: B

Comments: I cooked these at 12:30 am, after having just finished watching three hours worth of The Godfather. God bless E for putting up with my strange cooking habits. Anyways, they were fun and easy to make, made my apartment smell *wonderful* with the scent of cinnamon sticks and simmering pears. However, they were a bit anti-climactic in taste. It could've just been that I was eating them at 1 am and a bit tired, but I wasn't as bowled over as I'd expected. They would make a nice light end to an autumn meal though. Next time: bigger pears and fresh cranberries (they only had dried at the market).
